Eden House Eyenhall near Penrith, Cumbria & The Lake District


Have you ever heard about the attractive town Penrith? Once upon a time, it was the capital of Cumbria. I have been there 5 years ago on a trip. I literally enjoyed there a perfect mixture of traditional and sophisticated shops.  This town is famous for many old yard entrances with interesting inscriptions on the lintels.

People come from the different corner of the world just to see the city’s rich history. You can enjoy the diversified beauty of resorts listed under hoopla hotels.

A magnificent, Grade II listed, detached house in the center of Edenhall village.

Furnished and decorated to a good standard, Eden House oozes charm and character, with high ceilings, creating a feeling of space and grandeur.

Very much a home-from-home, this delightful property offers open fires, original tiled floors, canted bay windows, shutters, beams and gorgeous fire surrounds, all retaining the provenance of this 18th-century house.

The main sitting rooms overlook the beautiful, walled garden and the comfy sofas entice the whole family to curl up and relax after a day exploring the surrounding countryside.

The kitchen is sleek and spacious and ideally located next to the dining room, perfect for the allocated chef to serve up a delight for that long-awaited get-together with family and friends.

On the first floor, there are three double bedrooms, one with an en-suite and a single bedroom and a pull-out stacker bed, along with a bathroom, whilst the second floor has two twins, one with an extra single bed, a library, and a bathroom, plus there’s a sauna.

In the west wing, there is a large pantry with slate shelving, perfect for cooling drinks and snacks, and a large games room with darts and a full-size snooker table.

There is also a useful utility and boot room.

Eden House is set in 1.5 acres of tended garden, to the rear, there is a large patio with steps leading up to a lawned area with mature hedges and trees, plenty of room for the children to let off steam, and to the front of the house, there is a semi-circular sweeping carriage drive.

The surrounding countryside provides plenty to see and do with cycle routes and walks galore.

Nearby Penrith has a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants, a cinema and a swimming pool.

There are many lovely drives available, including ones which will take you to Alston, the highest market town in England, Appleby, Keswick and Langwathby, which has been voted amongst the top ten scenic driving roads in the world.

You can take a day trip to visit the Lake District National Park and go for walks around the magnificent lakes of Ullswater and Haweswater, or head in the opposite direction to the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

The Eden Gorge is also well worth a visit, from where you can join the Settle-Carlisle Railway and enjoy one of the most beautiful railway journeys.

Eden House is the perfect location for that long awaited get together in the Eden Valley.
